Gallery: Gorgeous Ruby Springs Prefab Features Hydraulic Shade Screens ...

    The interior designer Stephanie Sandston, who is based in Bozeman, Montana, did an incredible job with this project, which she originated–even first constructing it in her yard. Even the curtain fabric is her design. Her creative hand is on this whole project, and she deserves some credit!
